This did not turn out tasting like Krispy Kreme, but it did taste pretty close to our small hometown bakery doughtnuts. The shope closed last year after 35 years. It brought back memories for us and our neighbors (made so many, delivered them to the neighbors). Gave it a five start because of the memories!

I have made many donut recipes from the web and even from many books and
this by far is the BEST donut recipe I have encountered.

It was close to Krispy Kreme but it's as best as you can do.
Commercial donut makers have so many more options than we do from oils, dough conditioners and natural and artificial flavors.

Plus they have spent thousands of hours to getting exactly the right balance of flavors.

But enough of this!. YOU LIKE DONUTS? MAKE THIS RECIPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My 13 year old son had a Krispy Kreme craving, and solved it by making this recipe. He was so patient and the results were amazing! He thinks he will add a little more sugar to the main dough next time. He wanted them just a bit sweeter. I blogged his experience: http://mommamindy.blogspot.com/2010/03/krispy-kreme-king.html A great recipe for an aspiring chef!

These did taste just like Krispy Kreme doughnuts. They took sooooo long to make though! If you're looking for a quick doughnut fix, this probably isn't the recipe for you. I blogged about this recipe with step by step photos: http://lambaround.blogspot.com/2010/02/krispy-kreme-doughnuts.html

These were delicious. Well worth the effort. My kids loved these and so did the secretary's at my son's school, I brought them the rest of the doughnuts this morning because I didn't need the temptation. Even a day old the ladies said they were great. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

My kids LOVED these doughnuts. I made a batch, let them rise the first rise, cut them out and immediately threw them in the freezer to freeze them. Then, I pulled out what I need, let them thaw and rise for 1 hour and cooked them...PERFECT! In fact my son said that the frozen batch turned out better than the fresh batch I made.
